These are the best turkey burgers I’ve ever had. Juicy and so flavourful. When I shot these for the blog I made these bunless, but they’d be just as delicous with a soft burger bun.
The sauteed onions go right into the patty mixture. To save time sometimes I will sautee the onion the day before and leave it in the fridge until I am ready to make the patties. You can cook the burgers in the oven or bbq. Recipe makes six burgers.
Ingredients for the caramelized onions:
2 small cooking onions diced (or one large)
olive oil to coat pan
salt and pepper to taste
Heat the oil in a frying pan, adding the onions and lightly salt and pepper. Cook on low-medium heat for 10-15 minutes until they become fragrant and start to caramelize.
Ingredients for the burgers:
450 gram package of ground turkey
4 tbsp bread crumbs
1 and 1/2 tbsp dried thyme
1/2 tsp salt
1 tsp dijon mustard
1 tsp garlic powder
black pepper to taste
Prepare the onions. Let cool. Preheat oven to 375. You can also bbq these. I have done both and like both equally. In a large mixing bowl combine all the burger ingredients, except for the turkey. Mix with a fork and add in the ground turkey. Don’t overmix. This recipe makes six burgers. Make small balls with the patty mixture and press down firmly to create the patties. Cook on a parchment paper lined sheet in the oven 25 minutes flipping once. Delicious served with lettuce, tomato, avocado and feta.
